  1. Great to see this- the carnival was a highlight of my summer when I was small ( I was 9 in 1967). We would watch the carnival from the flat above my dad’ s shop in Whitstable High Street and have a collection of pennies which in my memory we threw at the floats , although that seems a bit dangerous now!

  2. Does anyone have any further memories of this revolutionary year and the ‘Summer of Love’ that they’d be willing to share with me? Please email me if so! Myths and legends abound… Was it just London or was Kent a place of change too? Hope to hear from you, Francesca xx
